It pays to pay attention in class if you’re a student athlete in Manitoba.
Today, Sport Manitoba presented $21,000 in academic scholarships to students around the province. Eight high school students and eight university students, a 2013 class representing six communities and 15 different sports, received the awards.
High school athletes earning a $500 Manitoba Foundation for Sports scholarship include:
Kinsley also picked up an additional $500 through the Milt Stegall Scholarship, which is awarded to the top high school student entering a post-secondary institution.
Seven university students received $1,000 cheques through the Manitoba Foundation for Sports organization. The list of athletes, all from the University of Manitoba this year, features:
Mislawchuk earned an extra $1,000 via the Stegall scholarship, while Ali picked up the Bud Tinsley Sport Leadership Scholarship ($500) for his guidance in the classroom and on the court. Pischke and rower Kevin Kowalyk (also from the University of Manitoba) each received $3,000 via the Princess Royal Pan Am Scholarship.
Meanwhile, four student coaches each received a $500 bursary from Coaching Manitoba. Swim coach Shelly Kroeker (Landmark) and volleyball coach Aaron Cyr (St. Andrews) earned the rural prizes, while Winnipeg’s Dana Cartlidge and Cameron Krisko received awards for their work in gymnastics and Special Olympics track and field, respectively.
Sport Manitoba also made an announcement honouring board chairman Paul Robson Friday. Robson, a long time supporter of amateur sport in the province, will now see his name affixed to the resource centre. The Paul Robson Resource Library for Leadership and Coaching is in the Sport for Life building, which is located on Pacific Avenue.
